“What’s in a Name?” – Justice Emilios Kyrou
This article examines why many of the early Hellenic lawyers in Australia anglicised their names. The author suggests that if people change their names to conform, they risk losing part of their identity, as a name can signify a person’s familial and cultural heritage. He also observes that, as multiculturalism has gained broad community acceptance, Greek Australians are embracing their Hellenic names.
